“Too Crowded...”
Reviewed November 27, 2010

This museum is located on the ground of where St. Paul's Cathedral used to stand. To access the museum one can access the staircase and get down the basement. Basically it is a small space with 1 wing displaying some artifacts related to Catholic Church and huge pictures of Jesus and other saints. The crypt is located in the middle of the building in between 2 staircases. It supposed to be a quiet walk in order for someone to fully enjoying the whole thing, but being located in the same site with Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral (Macau's #1 tourist destination), there is no chance one could experience this in solemnity.
Security is non-existence here and tourists just ignore the posted signs and placards; one of the notable one is "No flash photography" and "Please be quiet". They're (especially those joining tour groups) just shout at each other to give direction where they should be headed.
I would give the whole collection and museum 4/5
But the experience itself is 2/5 at best.
